Letter from the Commanding Officer

Congratulations on your orders to the AEGIS Training and Readiness Center (ATRC). On behalf of the staff at ATRC, welcome to the Navy’s finest training facility. We are headquartered in Dahlgren, Va., which is about an hour southeast of Washington D.C. and 40 minutes east of Fredericksburg, Va.

Base housing is available, depending on the size of home needed. Base housing is now available to permanent party geo-bachelors through Lincoln Military Housing.
